LIVING FREE IN THE POWER AND PEACE OF THE SPIRIT
Most Christians recognize the Bible as a book that is full of “good advice,” but the question remains as to whether or not Scripture has the inherent authority that it should have if we are to be truly obedient to God. If we believe that Scripture is more than simply “good advice”—that it is, in fact, the inspired Word of God—then “all the words in Scripture are God’s Words in such a way that to disbelieve any word of Scripture is to disbelieve or disobey God.”
Divine revelation is essential if we are to know something about God’s character and moral laws. And even though He has placed in every person’s heart an awareness of His existence and attributes (Romans 1:18-20), the Scriptures are essential if we are to know and understand the Gospel, maintain a dynamic spiritual life, understand His intentions for the church, and know God’s will.
Understandable & Trustworthy
If the Scriptures are to be profitable for us, then they must be understandable and trustworthy. And since God Himself is the author of Scripture, the Bible must necessarily be sufficient and comprehensible so as to communicate His purposes. God did not reveal His Word to the writers of Scripture for us not to understand it! In fact, Deuteronomy 6:6-7states, “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” The clarity and trustworthiness of the Scriptures should lead us to:
- Recognize our individual responsibility to search out and know for ourselves w hat God desires and requires
- Apply His Word in every circumstance, even though our knowledge and understanding of the same may never be complete
- Continue to study His Word to improve our knowledge and understanding
GRACED WITH POWER AND EMPOWERED TO BEAR FRUIT
One of the most wonderful things about living a life that is led by the Holy Spirit is that we are empowered to bear fruit. That means we can actually expect that the work we put our hand to would achieve good results, be that in business, in our relationships, in our creative pursuits, in our character and even in our efforts to share Jesus. As we see evidence of this and it becomes one of our foundational beliefs, we live with greater confidence and faith.
“The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.”
The Holy Spirit
Just mention the word control and people dart for the door! For many, the concept of control is negative. A marriage is damaged if a mate exerts heavy-handed control. Cults are rampant with “mind control”—even to the point of inciting mass suicide. Mind-altering drugs and alcohol can lead people to think they are in control when they are not—when, in fact, the substance is.
While many people spend their lives in a quest for control, others have an unhealthy fear of losing control. This human dilemma finds an answer only in God. He wants you to give Him control! By choosing to submit your will to the leading of God’s Holy Spirit, you will have His supernatural peace.
“The mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.”
What Is the Holy Spirit’s Role in the Believer’s Life Today?
If you are a Christian, the Holy Spirit abides within your human spirit to bring about God’s purposes in your life. Envision the battery of a flashlight and the power and light it produces. How much more the power, light, and direction that come from God through His Holy Spirit!
- He convinces us that we are sinners. the act of convicting
“When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment.”
- He converts us from sinners to saints. the act of regenerating
“He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.”
- He cleanses us and places (baptizes) us into the body of Christ. the act of baptizing
“We were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.”
(1 Corinthians 12:13)
- He comes to live within us. the act of indwelling
“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?”
(1 Corinthians 6:19)
- He counsels us in the way we should go. the act of teaching
“The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
- He causes us to obey God’s will. the act of empowering
“I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.”
- He controls our behavior. The act of filling.
“The disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.”
- He communicates our unspoken prayers. the act of interceding
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.”
- He confirms our destiny in heaven. the act of sealing
“[He] set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”
(2 Corinthians 1:22)
